Is it cheaper to build or buy a shed?

Whether you’re looking for the ultimate man cave or need a place to store that expensive lawn mower, sheds are an excellent solution. But you’re probably asking yourself should I buy one off-the shelf and assemble it myself? Every situation is unique so there’s no single answer here but do remember quality matters more than anything else when picking out which type will work best in yours! We have broken down buying and building so you can make the decision that’s right for you.

Buying

Advantages

  • It’s already built
  • No Skills required
  •  No need to buy tools
  • It will have a warranty
  • Great Designs

Disadvantages

  • Cost can be considerably higher
Building

Advantages

  • Budget control
  • Quality control (materials, tools etc)
  • Cheaper
  • You can build your own unique design
  • It can be exactly what you want without needing to modify

Disadvantages

  • Time, it will take longer as a DIY project
  • You will most likely need assistance when building your own

Both buying and building are great options but it ultimately comes down to the project you are building and the time and money you have to spend on the project.
